Connie has attended the Civil War Institute at Gettysburg for twenty years and has gleaned a wide range of knowledge about the battle and about the memorialization of the battlefield. Parking for the lecture is available along Pleasant Street, off Forest Street (no on-street parking) as well as in a small lot next to the History Center. $3 for non-members, $1 for Society members, and free for children under age 16.
